Weekly Garden Tip
The brown marmorated stink bug is an invasive species to North America and causing a huge problem. The good news is that there are natural predators for them including native predatory stink bugs.
Predatory stink bugs will feed on plant matter in their early stages, but in later stages, they will actually hunt the brown marmorated stink bugs along with caterpillars and literally over 100 other species of garden pests. Our beneficial stink bugs sometimes look similar to the brown marmorated stink bug in many of their stages. Double check before you destroy eggs, nymphs, and the adults that they are not our beneficials.

GYOV CEO Denise Beins enjoyed the fall weather by planting garlic this past week. Denise shares her tip for the bulbous plant: “I like to plant it around the border of my raised beds in hopes that it deters unwanted critters.”
